MB FOOD FEST
Showcasing Made in Manitoba Food & Beverage Products
We’re bringing together Manitoba’s favourite local food and beverages at the 3rd annual MB Food Fest on Sunday, September 17th, 2023 from 12:30-6:00 PM at the historic Fort Gibraltar. We will be offering two different ticket time frames, 12:30-3:00pm + 3:30-6:00pm.
Guests will be able to sample and purchase direct from our participating vendors.
MB Food Fest hopes to capture the attention of those that understand the importance of supporting our local makers, along with supporting the existing and new food & beverage products being developed within our province. This ticketed sampling event will celebrate and showcase participating Manitoba makers and their products.
